You’re sure to already have your own favorite luxury hotel brands — maybe there’s one that has just the right amenities or another that you can always rely on for an excellent staff, no matter where you are in the world. While you may love these brands for your own reasons, they could also offer some perks for your kids. Are you taking full advantage of these perks as more and more hotel brands begin catering to younger jetsetters?
Not only does St. Regis provide a Family Traditions at St. Regis offer for you to save on your family stays, but the brand also takes your child into consideration throughout each step of the stay. Unique amenities are provided, whether it be a keepsake or a kid-sized robe; dining doesn’t exclude the picker palettes at the table; and each St. Regis property can provide access to local agencies for qualified babysitting right within your guestroom. Plus, if you forget something at home, all you have to do is ask and you can get a stroller, baby wipes or even diapers.
Similarly, at the Four Seasons, strollers are available for children under 5 for no charge and the same children can eat for free with their parents at on-site restaurants.

Select Omni properties take older kids into consideration with teen concierge services. The professionals at Omni provide teens with great recommendations for the local spots popular with their own age groups, so they’re not left wandering around behind mom and dad for the entire duration of the trip.
Another limited but incredibly cool kid-friendly amenity is the in-room tents at Westin Hotels & Resorts. Suite-staying parents can request a cute, hipster-esque tent for their pint-sized traveling companions, and certain properties extend the offer further with toys and activities added.
